These are the new arrivals to my shelves. They’re used books bought in Oxfam and Women’s Aid Society. I’ve been curious about Libba Bray’s books for a while now. People always tell me good things about the trilogy and I had A Great and Terrible Beauty in my list for some time, but was always avoiding it. It’s funny when sometimes we have books in our wishlists that we want to read and, when the time comes, we just pretend they are not there and move on to the next. So, this week I just took the chance and brought The Diviners home with me. I hope I did well and won’t get disappointed.
The Paris Wife was also on my wishlist and I think I’ll like it very much. The other book with the incredibly long title… Well, I still don’t know how it managed to come home with me. I have never heard of it before and I’m still not sure of what’s the story really about. I do know that it is a teen’s fantasy book about a girl who circumnavigated fairyland in a ship of her own making, (quite obvious, isn’t it?).Probably is a teen fantasy novel. I guess it must have been the title… *I have a weakness for long titles starting with “The girl…”*
